cauliflower (2)

Vitaverde and Cheddar cauliflower

1 small garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 flat anchovy fillet, rinsed
2 tablespoons drained bottled capers, rinsed
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 head cauliflower (1 3/4 lb), cut into 1 1/2-inch florets
1/4 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

Mince and mash garlic to a paste with kosher salt using a large heavy knife, then add anchovy and capers and finely chop. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in lemon juice and pepper, then add oil in a slow stream, whisking until combined well.

Cook cauliflower in a 4-quart saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander, then toss hot cauliflower with dressing. Cool to warm, tossing occasionally, then add parsley and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
